Oct 26, 2000
is there an increased incidence of hemorrhoids in hiv positive people? i have a lump in my rectum which i believe to be a hemorrhoid, and was wondering if there was anything i needed to know in dealing with it?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
Hemorrhoids are common, period. However, it isn't wise to assume that a lump in the rectum is hemorrhoids. It could also be a wart or cancer. Please see your doctor for a definitive diagnosis.
